A python script to download Bing wallpaper

StoneHoo Lv4

今天想起来以前的一个脚本,用来下载当天的 bing 的壁纸,还都挺好看的,但是忘记怎么写了。就问了 chatGPT 给出了正解。已经成功下载了两天的壁纸。

import requests
import os
from datetime import datetime

def fetch_bing_wallpaper():
# Bing Wallpaper API URL
api_url = "https://www.bing.com/HPImageArchive.aspx?format=js&idx=0&n=1&mkt=en-US"

# Send a GET request to the API
response = requests.get(api_url)

save_directory = "/Users/geekqq/Pictures/bing-wallpapers/"

# Check if the request was successful (status code 200)
if response.status_code == 200:
# Parse the JSON response
data = response.json()

# Get the image URL
image_url = f"https://www.bing.com{data['images'][0]['url']}"

# Get the current date for naming the file
current_date = datetime.now().strftime("%Y%m%d")

# Download the image
image_response = requests.get(image_url)
if image_response.status_code == 200:
# Save the image to a local file
with open(os.path.join(save_directory, f"bing_wallpaper_{current_date}.jpg"), "wb") as file:
file.write(image_response.content)
print("Bing Wallpaper downloaded successfully.")
else:
print("Failed to download Bing Wallpaper.")
else:
print(f"Failed to fetch Bing Wallpaper. Status Code: {response.status_code}")

if __name__ == "__main__":
fetch_bing_wallpaper()

如果要修改壁纸保存的地址,可以自行修改脚本中的 save_directory 的变量为自己的保存路径。
保存之后修改脚本的权限就可以使用了:

1
2
sudo chmod +x download_bing_wallpaper.py
python download_bing_wallpaper.py

我还建立了一个 cronjob 让脚本每天自动下载壁纸:

1
0 0 * * * python /Users/geekqq/shell/download_bing_wallpaper.py

对了,建立 cronjob 也很简单,用这个命令就可以打开编辑器来修改或者增加 cronjob 了:

1
sudo crontab -e
